Medics: 4 injured in Jerusalem clashes

Jan. 4, 2013 10:38 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 4, 2013 9:38 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Four young men were injured in Jerusalem late Thursday during clashes with Israeli forces, Palestinian medical sources said.

The clashes took place when Israeli forces suppressed a march organized to show solidarity with hunger striking detainee Samer Issawi, who is from Jerusalem.

Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets towards the marchers, who had gathered in the Ras al-Amud neighborhood, moderately injuring four people.

An Israeli military court suspended Issawi's next court hearing for one month on Wednesday, a prisoners society lawyer said. He has been on hunger strike for 157 days.
